Journal Entry 1 by wingPlum-crazywing from Brighouse, West Yorkshire United Kingdom on Saturday, September 30, 2017

This book has not been rated.

It's 1940 and with London under fire, Edie and her little brother are evacuated to Wales. Miles from home and missing her family, Edie is determined to be strong, but when life in the countryside proves tougher than in the capital she is torn between obeying her parents and protecting her brother.

Received in my Random bookbox on its return home.

This reminds me of the stories my late mother in law used to tell of her evacuation from London in the wartime so I will read this before moving it on. On to tbr.

Glad I read this. A lot more detailed than my mother in law would admit to in general, but then, she also went into even more detail about the differences where she was evacuated to and her life in London so perhaps the change in emphasis is more about the characters of the people rather than how it was - after all, each has their own perspective.

It is refreshing to read how someone so young was also on the 'lookout' for the health and welfare of their sibling and how the war coloured all their lives for ever. Fascinating.

No specific plan for this at present but it may well be in another book box at some point!
